Former AnaJet/Ricoh DTG Executives Venture Out on Their Own to Start DTG Connection, LLC




DTG Connection, LLC Is a California based corporation started by the former CEO, Vice President of North American Sales and Marketing Director of AnaJet, Inc. and Ricoh DTG. Through strategic business relationships, the DTG Connection team will be an authorized reseller of the award-winning Ricoh Ri 1000 as well as other exciting new products and services to be announced in early 2021 to provide a total business solution to customers. 

Karl Tipre, former CEO of AnaJet, Inc. and Ricoh DTG said, “This new venture will focus primarily on the customer. Our aim is to do more than sell businesses a new tool or printer. We will provide a full solution business opportunity that connects customers to field service options, and other printer operators allowing users to share and receive jobs.” Adam Tipre, former Vice President of North American Sales added, “Our goal is to create a community that can share resources and ideas for all DTG users. We will personally support customers to ensure maximum performance and individual success.”

With more than 30 years of cumulative experience in DTG, the new team will leverage its knowledge of customer needs and make it a priority to provide a world class experience for Ricoh Ri 1000 direct-to-garment printer owners. When interviewed, Paul Crocker, former Director of Marketing said, “For years we saw opportunities to better support our customers and add value. I’m excited to be a part of DTG Connection because we are now uniquely positioned to connect all the necessary partners to create a new, world-class experience, for our customers. The future of digital printing is exciting!”

To encourage customers to try the DTG Connection experience, the company is offering a very attractive package to new buyers. To celebrate the launch of DTG Connection, it will be extending a special offer to its customers. Every Ricoh Ri 1000 purchase will include free shipping plus a free 16×20 inch heat press.
